It’s two days left until the celebration of our 10th anniversary! Grab your tickets to our birthday concert and party HERE!
This is a big milestone for us as we will be saying goodbye to the old management team – those who have been so dedicated and devoted to Hanoi Grapevine in the last decade – and welcoming a new one.
At the event, Hanoi Grapevine’s founder Brian Ring will officially hand over the project to the new team. Come say hello and have a blast with our fine selection of music by Vietnamese and international artists!
• Nguyen Duc Minh (Vietnamese Jew’s harp) & Quyen Thien Dac (saxophone)
• Nguyen Thuy Dung (Vietnamese zither) & Daniel Henneberry (guitar, vocal) & David Payne (guitar)
• Linh Ha (vocal) & Corey Keating (electronic)
• Lark Minkous (ambient soundscape)
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Nguyen Duc Minh & Quyen Thien Dac
A composition from the ‘Chem Gio’ project, a new collaboration between the Jew’s harpist Nguyen Duc Minh and saxophonist Quyen Thien Dac, will be the highlight of the night. The project combines jazz improvisation and traditional rhythm from the ethnic minorities in the Northwest mountains of Viet Nam.

Nguyen Thuy Dung & Daniel Henneberry & David Payne:
A collaboration between traditional and contemporary music styles, the trio will bring three original pieces of music with live processed guitar, processed acoustic sounds and vocals by Daniel Henneberry (UK), processed guitar by David Payne (AUS) and Vietnamese zither (đàn tranh) by Nguyen Thuy Dung (VN).

Linh Ha & Corey Keating
Linh Ha taps into the emotion of wonder, uplift, sorrow and reflection, through improvised looped vocal arrangements, focusing on the spirit of the beat. Listen to her music and let her take you to the land of mysterious creatures flitting through the air of woven vocals.
Corey Keating is an electronic musician currently studying at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, where he is pursuing doctoral studies in composition and music technology. His recent work (as Audio Geometry) explores process-based electronic music production – a kind of dubby, washed-out, melodic glitch focusing on musical beauty in system design, proportionality, aleatory, and error. As a recent Fulbright recipient, Corey is conducting research in Vietnam relating to contemporary musical culture and practices, both acoustic and electronic, and the ways in which modern technology supports, preserves, and advances these traditions.
Lark Minkous specializes in live ambient soundscapes and creates tracks using atmospheric samples and acoustic recordings. Slow unfolding patterns subtly reveal themselves, drifting in, out and between peaceful bright harmonies and dark, rich, complex spaces.
